Macmillan and Co., 1881. — 771 p.The volume commences with a short historical sketch of the rise and progress of chemical science, and a few words relative to the history of each element and its more important compounds prefaces the systematic discussion of their chemical properties. For this portion of their work, the authors wish here to acknowledge their indebtedness to Hermann Kopp's classical works on the History of Chemistry. In the part of the volume devoted to the description of the non-metallic elements, care has been taken to select the most recent and exact experimental data, and to give references in all important instances, as it is mainly by consulting the original memoirs that a student can obtain a full grasp of his subject Much attention has likewise been given to the representation of apparatus adapted for lecture-room experiment, and the numerous new illustrations required for this purpose have all been taken from photographs of apparatus actually in use. The fine portrait which adorns the title-page is a copy, by the skilful hands of Mr. Jeens, of a daguerreotype taken shortly before Dalton's death.
